Fast and Healthy Pancakes

July 27, 2010 in Breakfast, Pancake/Waffle Recipes by Joyce Bunderson

Changing from white flour products to whole wheat products was one of the permanent changes that supported Dr. Grandpa’s maintenance of significantly lower weight and blood sugar.

I hope this little note will encourage you to consider resolving to eat mostly whole grains, substantially reducing your intake of refined white flour products. It is becoming easier to do it. You don’t need to grind your own wheat to have true whole grain pasta, pancakes, waffles, cereal, muffins, snack cakes and so on. The new products are delicious, while reducing your risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and obesity. We encourage you to find good sources for tasty new whole grain pastas, breads and other products now becoming more readily available.

Ingredients

1 ¼ cup whole wheat pancake mix
1 ½ cups Water
1 large egg
2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil (or vegetable oil)

Optional: 1/2 cup fresh or frozen blackberries
2 Tbsp. Greek yogurt

Directions:

Stir together the wet ingredients; egg, water and oil.

Pour over the dry pancake mix.

Do not over mix; there will be lumps and that’s fine.

Spoon batter into skillet and wait for a few bubbles on surface.

Flip and cook on other side.

Remove from pan and top with Greek yogurt and blackberries - if desired.
